Boiling the kettle…

I depressed the switch on the side of the kettle. The water began to heat up until it reached boiling point. The kettle then turned itself off, requiring me to take no further action.

    No further action? Then why go through all that trouble?

    but u needed to take a further action if you wanted to make a cup of tea/coffee. u can’t just leave the kettle like that!

    “Further action” implies you are, in fact, already acting somehow.

  5. littleman says:

    no further action would use no use of the water, thus making the water cold after no further action, leaving the water in the same state as started in an endless spacial continuing of the water having no purpose.

    Btw u dont boil a kettle……. u boil water in a kettle. to boil the kettle u would have to put the kettle in a pot full of boiling water. 😛 Gosh!!

    But Steve, the action implied was the depression of the switch – as this kettle automatically turns off after boiling the water, he would not need to deactivate it manually. Quite a bit of philosophy, creative thinking, science, and otherwise fitting aspects of the mind have been used on this forum…

    As the army would say “We do more before noon than most people do before 12:00.”

    Everyone comments on the entry on placing pencils in the desk. It must be one of the most popular Internet posts.
